Girls Day Out: Fifty Shades of Grey pt. 1

Fifty Shades poster

Last Friday I went to see the film Fifty Shades of Grey in the cinema 1 day after the première. If you’ve read my post about me getting ready for this film, you know that I wrote it right before I actually left the house. Before I went off to get my Fifty Shades on, I felt the need to share it with you and told you that I have not read the book yet. What I also said is that I would at least read about the first encounter of Miss Steele and Mister Grey before seeing the movie (and let the rest of the story be a surprise). Well, I didn’t. Between proofreading my post and getting ready to leave, I didn’t have the time. Even if it took me 10 seconds to put together my outfit. What did I think of Fifty Shades of Grey? Read on as I tell you how I experienced this film and watching it with my best friend. And how I almost didn’t make it. Continue reading “Girls Day Out: Fifty Shades of Grey pt. 1”

Getting ready for Fifty Shades Of Grey

Fifty Shades Of Grey

One of the most long anticipated films is finally here for us ladies (and gents) to see. After Sex and the City The Movie, this is a film that many woman have waited on for a long time ever since the book came out. Of course I’m talking about nothing other than Fifty Shades Of Grey. And I must say I am one of the women who has counted the days ever since I’ve heard about the movie and the release date. Continue reading “Getting ready for Fifty Shades Of Grey”

How I celebrated the first day of summer

Summerday 9

While sitting here ending this weekend with a cold cosmopolitan, I wanted to tell you about how I spent the first day of summer 2014. Like I told you in my previous post Happy first day of summer, I always wear a new summer dress on june 21 to celebrate the kick off of the summer season, I also added a picture of the dress. And when I wear a new dress I want to go somewhere special or do something special. After being at home most of the day, watching a few episodes of the series Awkward on MTV and working on my laptop, I wanted to take it outside to celebrate summer and wear my new dress. So I did. Continue reading “How I celebrated the first day of summer”

Monday Inspiration: Never stop looking

A very beautiful quote that might take some time to understand, but for the dreamers and go-getters among us it is pretty obvious. I got this quote from the movie The Magic of Belle Isle from the character Monte Wildhorn played by Morgan Freeman. Quote of the week: Never stop looking for what’s not there.   Have a wonderful week!   Continue reading Monday Inspiration: Never stop looking

Fashion and romance in Dutch film ‘Hartenstraat’

Besides fashion and good food I really love movies. I guess you can say that when it comes to movies I am a big Hollywood fan. But from time to time I can watch a Dutch movie if the storyline sounds good. So I did yesterday. Since I had to be in Amsterdam city centre for a meeting, I thought why not take this opportunity to go see a movie at the Pathé cinema in the city centre, giving the fact that I almost always go to the cinema in Amsterdam Southeast.

Anna Wintour look a like in the latest Captain America movie

Today I went to the new Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As I always watch movies with a fashion eye also, I couldn’t help but notice that one of the new S.H.I.E.L.D. members, played by Jenny Agutter, had a striking resemblance to Anna Wintour. Now I wonder if her style was based and inspired on that of miss Wintour. She didn’t have a big role in the film, but every time she came on I was thinking: hey Anna Wintour. That’s what I called her in the movie. On g4tv.com I’ve read that Jenny has actually already been in the MCU with a small role as a World Security Council member in The Avengers. Since I didn’t see that movie yet (I know, shame on me), I can’t comment on her looks there. In real life Jenny Agutter doesn’t look like Anna Wintour though. Continue reading “Anna Wintour look a like in the latest Captain America movie”

What Not To Wear: The timeless fashion series

One of my favorite fashion series on television is What Not To Wear. In this show stylists Stacy London and Clinton Kelly give women, whose style is just a big no-no, a fashion make over. These women are nominated by their friends and family to be on the show because they think that help is much needed. If these women agree to play by the rules of Stacy and Clinton they get a credit card worth of 5000 dollars to get a whole new wardrobe by shopping in New York. Not only do they get to buy a whole new wardrobe, they also get a new hair style from hair stylist Ted Gibson, and a whole new look from make up artist Carmindy.
